    general farm worker needed

    hi , anyone know of a agri student or a young farmer looking for experience on a dairy farm ? we are currently looking for a full time member of staff to join the family farm but if you would wish for a 6 month stint on the farm over the summer or next winter then we could easily look at it as an option . work would involve feeding the 300+ dairy herd and various tractor work , he/she must also do their share of the milking and calving duties and various other jobs around the farm . accommodation will be provided .
    pm if you are interested please
    thanks

    ha ha yes that would probably help ! we are in the in south west wales . this is the first time in many years we find ourselves having to employ so it will be a new experience for us and hopefully beneficial to all . we are happy to talk to people with plenty of experience but also to those who are looking to learn a lot about dairy farming with an eye in a future in the industry

    Send Harper Adams university an email as they will forward the email advertising your position around the college which would increase the chance of employment for you and students

    Also send an E-mail to Greenmount Agricultural College here in Northern Ireland as they are always looking for new farms further afield that might take on a studend suring their sandwich year. And also they will advertise it on their Job's notice board.
    In God we trust. ALL others pay CASH!!!!!

    Gelli Aur college near Carmarthen would be a good start surely. Maybe someone who's doing a hnd and only has to be in college one day a week.
